About Dr. Shelly Reitkop, N.D.

I discovered Naturopathic Medicine in 2005, when I was studying for the MCATS, the medical school entrance exam.  I always knew I wanted to be a doctor, but I had never heard of Naturopathy. As soon as I learned about the naturopathic philosophies and principles, I knew it was the type of medicine I always longed to practice.

After graduating from The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2010 I decided to specialize in digestive, hormone and mental health and what I noticed was that every patient who came to see me listed weight loss as a main concern or goal.  I started researching and reading more about the current weight loss programs available and realized that few, if any, took a truly comprehensive approach.  Over the last 5 years, I have developed a successful weight loss program that combines nutrition, nutritional supplements, botanical herbs, acupuncture, homeopathy and lifestyle counselling.  Patients not only reach their weight loss goals, but also improve their overall health and quality of life.

This summer I decided to further enhance my knowledge and get my Personal Training Specialist certification.  It has given me the chance to create personalized training plans and work one-on-one or in a group setting with patients.
